J.S a pariBh containing about 15,444 acres, in the district of
Carriek ; the village, old and picturesque, is 18 miles s. from Ayi- and
4% from Maybole, situated on a line of road from Portpatrick to
Glasgow, 90 miles from the former, and 48, by the new road, from the
latter town. Thcparish is nighly interesting, as containing within its
limits several objects of great attraction for the stranger and the
tourist. The sea coast presents a sandy beach, with a beautiful
rich sward to the very sea mark; and there are two lakes, from
"whence flow many small streams that wander through the district
towards the sea. Of Jate years there have been raised various deUght-
ful plantations, particularly near the shore around Culzean Castle,
the beautiful seat of the Marquis of Ailsa, who is lord of the manor.
The mansion, whicJi is a fine specimen of ancient architecture, is
placed on a rock overhanging the sea ; and on the land side are
dehcious gardens, with a noble park of great extent. Not far from
the castle is a fort, mounted with thirteen guna, and a mortar
battery, both kept in efficient order. In a low vaUey, between
Kirkoswald and Maybole, are the remains of the abbey of Cross-
raguell, founded by Duncan, first Earl of Carriek, and dedicated to
the Vii-giu Mary ; at one period it was possessed by Cluniac monlis
from Paisley, at the Heformation it became the property of the Earl
of CassilHSj'but it now pertains to Sir James Ferguson, of Kilker-
ran. From the coast-road between Girvan and Maybole may be
seen the ruins of TurnbeiTy Castle, once the residence and property
of Robert Bruce. Within view of this memorial of former centuries,
and not more than a mile from it, lies the farm of Shanter, once
the residence of Douglas Graham, the hero of Burns' poem " Tarn
o' Shanter," thongh that houom- is disputed by some in favour of
another farmer, called Thomas Eeid. Population in 1871: parish,
1,628; village, 302.
